It is any activity where someone is offering goods for sale on Council land i.e., roadside verge, footpath or parking bay areas.
It can include, but is not limited to, any of the following:-
Whilst Council recognises and supports the practice of vending certain products from public roads, it has also been acknowledged that there is a need to ensure these activities meet the requirements of the Local Government Act and that all activities are undertaken in a safe and orderly manner.
Council appreciates that roadside stalls are a characteristic of the Adelaide Hills rural environment, providing residents the means to sell farm gate produce or manage manure on their property by selling it on the roadside.
To aid and encourage appropriate street and roadside activities, Council has developed a policy and guidelines to assist roadside stalls to ensure that public safety is not compromised and that pedestrians and road users can use roads and roadsides freely.
Council staff will be visiting roadside stall sites advising traders of the new Council Policy and requesting they submit an application. Roadside stall holders will need to submit an application, which will be assessed, and if appropriate provided with a permit to continue to trade.
